He announced it on his Facebook page in a response to today's statement by Head of the Zakarpattia Regional State Administration Hennadii Moskal, Censor.NET reports.
"As for the situation around smuggling at the Zakarpattia customs, which you mentioned. For me it doesn't matter what kind of smuggling is there - wood, cigarettes, nuts, alcohol, or something else. What we need to do is not deciding what smuggling is worse but putting an end to any smuggling. I'll repeat what I've said many times - enough with plundering the country," Hroisman stressed.
He also noted he would ask the Security Service and the NABU to check all the facts set out by Moskal.
"No one is allowed to use the language of ultimatums toward me. Hennadii Hennadiiovych [Moskal - ed.], despite your request, I'm not going to initiate your dismissal. There is a lot of work to be done, including with our combined efforts. Let's together start a new tradition of appointing administrative staff at customs on the basis of public contests with the participation of non-governmental organizations. And we will start to implement this tradition at the Zakarpattia customs," Hroisman suggested.
"Tomorrow, during my visit to the Lviv region, I plan to visit one of the border crossings and discuss problems at the Lviv customs right on-site. They also have them, and I know about it. And next week, I will wait to meet you together with the leadership of the Zakarpattia customs," the PM added.
